USED to be, back when I was heavy into the political action crap (PAC), I knew tons of people into legalizing marijuana, but how do you register to vote when you live out of a van selling Grateful Dead t-shirts?
Well, after I sobered up from the rally (posted below), I did work with some folks on voter registration for the homeless, and we have made some big advances here in MN.
Our voting stats are pretty kickass here, but it's mainly because there are fewer barriers here than elsewhere. I mean, you can vote up to a month before the election here just because you don't like Tuesdays.
